Life in the Forest.
by [Poetry] Levertov, Denise.
A Near Fine tight copy with light foxing to the edges in a Near Fine, unclipped dust jacket. This is a Review copy with review slip laid-in. The poems in Life in the Forest are a thematic grouping which invites internal association from poem to poem and section to section. “The poems I had been moving towards,” she explains, “were impelled by two forces: first, a recurring need…to vary a habitual lyric mode; not to abandon it, by any means, but from time to time explore more expansive means; and second, the decision to try to avoid over use of the autobiographical, the dominant first-person singular of so much American poetry—good and bad—of recent years.”
